Going for goals

on January 29, 2013

Narwhals Parents/ carers
The children have been thinking about setting goals and today they started to think about their hopes and wishes for their futures. They have started to imagine what their ‘life journeys’ may be like to help them to achieve their goals.
We’ve asked them to interview you about your life journey to date. How have you achieved your successes?
It would be really helpful if you could share these with your child. Feel free to blog, produce a written piece of work or even produce a short video (interview).
It would be really helpful to have these by next Tuesday (5th February).

    I was born in St Lukes hospital in Bradford. I was brought up in a house in Bradford with my two sisters and my Mum & Dad. During my work experience with school I worked at the Leeds Permanent Building Society and decided finance was what I wanted to do. I studied A levels at school but didn’t want to continue to University so I found a job at 18. My first full time job was at the Yorkshire Building Society where I still work. During my early years there I studied part time at University and qualified as an Accountant.
    Since I settled down and had children I now work part time so I can enjoy my family and spend as much time with them as possible. Priorities change as life changes. Things that were important in earlier life and no longer so important. Who knows where life will go in the future. Planning is good but circumstances affect your life path and you need to go with it.

    When I was at school I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do, but I did know that I didn’t want to be stuck inside all day, I really enjoy the oudoors and have always been interested in plants and nature.
    After my A Levels I went to work in a local Garden Centre for a year to gain some experience before going to Askam Bryan College in York to get a qualification in horticulture.
    I then went back to the same Garden Centre……that was 23 years ago and I am still there as the Outdoor Manager.
    When I look back I can see that I have achieved many of the goals that I set for myself, I work outdoors all day (in all weathers) in an enviroment that I still enjoy.
    Sometimes the goals that you set for yourself may seem small but overtime they can make all the difference.
